NCAA BASEBALL ROUNDUP Friday's other games

South Carolina 6, Michigan 5
ATLANTA -- South Carolina pushed across a run in the ninth inning without getting a ball out of the infield. Steve Pearce drove in the winning run with a bases-loaded single off the glove of Michigan shortstop Leif Mahler. The Wolverines (41-18) rallied in the top of the ninth to tie the game at 5. The Gamecocks (39-21) bounced back in the bottom half off Michigan reliever Derek Feldkamp (9-5). Davy Gregg led off with a two-strike bunt single. He beat the throw on a sacrifice bunt and then took third while no one covered as they argued. A walk loaded the bases, and Pearce followed with a hard liner that slipped under Mahler's glove.
Georgia Tech 5, Furman 4, 10 innings
ATLANTA -- Jeff Kindel drove in the winning run with a two-out drive off the wall in the 10th inning.
